Synopsis and overview of the session

As business needs change and economic uncertainty deepens, alignment between cybersecurity and business is essential. Criminals are increasingly exploiting security gaps and gaining access to sensitive data using privileged accounts. Managing cybersecurity risk requires a modern approach to access management, particularly for privileged accounts. Privileged Access Management (PAM) controls need the highest levels of agility and scalability, to combat new vulnerabilities and to align with evolving business needs. This approach can provide a faster time to value while lowering the total cost of ownership. Increased integration of automation and AI is also critical to identify anomalies in the behaviour of privileged users and to resolve incidents as quickly as possible. 

Drawing on Focus Network’s expertise and Delinea’s latest global research, where over 2,000 cybersecurity decision-makers were interviewed, we invite you to join this exclusive group of CISOs and IT security leaders at an upcoming lunch briefing, where we will discuss some of the latest findings, while delving deeper into: 

1.    Ways of aligning cybersecurity more closely to business activities

2.    The need for a scalable and agile approach to PAM, especially in hybrid cloud environments

3.    The impact of Generative AI on identity and access management

4.    Improving time to value and reducing TCO with cloud-based PAM solutions
